Katharine Lane Weems Society

When you inform us that you have made a planned gift to the French Library, you become a member of the Katharine Lane Weems Society. The society is named for the noted Boston sculptor who set the precedent for planned giving to the French Library by bequeathing her home at 53 Marlborough Street to serve as our headquarters. Donors in this society are recognized every year in the French Library’s annual report.
